The Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO supports Foro QUIMICA y SOCIEDAD commemorative activities for IYC 2011. Foro QUÍMICA y SOCIEDAD is the organization leading the celebration in Spain.

To collaborate with Foro QUÍMICA y SOCIEDAD provides us with an opportunity to disseminate UNESCO ideals into the Spanish scientific, academic, professional, and management sectors related to Chemistry, drawn together in Foro QUÍMICA y SOCIEDAD. The Foro is the official Spanish organization leading the celebration of International Year of Chemistry 2011 in Spain”, stated Ms. Consuelo Vázquez Rueda in signing up the support agreement. Ms. Vázquez is Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO deputy General Secretary.

Thus, the Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO has declared its official support for:

Spanish Specific website for the International Year of Chemistry, a virtual platform presenting updated information on commemorative activities on IYC. The platform also incorporates content from different IYC websites, providing the pertinent links. In order to avoid duplicities the IYC Spanish virtual platform is integrated into the website of Foro QUÍMICA y SOCIEDAD, registering several domains for IYC.

Commemorative publication “Tienes Química, tienes Vida. The book is a platform to circulate and make visible how the many applications of chemistry have been improving our lives on its many aspects, while pinpointing some developments and innovations that will help us create a more sustainable world and live a better life. Each one of the eleven chapters (for 2011) of “Tienes Química, tienes Vida” includes the many applications of chemistry in a given field. The publication was officially presented on February 8 during the Official Opening of the International Year of Chemistry in Spain.

●  Special Video on the occasion of the International Year of Chemistry. On the video, fifteen relevant Spanish figures -in politics, research, sports, gastronomy or the movie business- give Chemistry specific support on its International Year presenting their vision on the contribution of Chemistry to our society’s development. The video is edited and distributed by Foro QUÍMICA y SOCIEDAD.

The Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO support is demonstrated by allowing the use of the name and logo of Spanish National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO.
